RMT transport union members and supporters protested outside parliament against driver-only operation on trains on 26 April. Just over a year after the Southern Rail dispute began, rail workers gathered to send a clear message to the government and rail companies that they will continue fighting to keep guards on the trains.

The rail operators' plan to cut jobs puts the safety of passengers and staff at risk. John McDonnell spoke at a rally after the picket and restated Labour's pledge to renationalise Britain's railways to take the network out the hands of companies like Southern and Govia Thameslink who put profits before delivering a good, safe service.
